As if the massive Assembly Square transit oriented developmentproject and the green line extension through Somerville weren’t exciting enough, today it was announced that pedestrian and bike access connecting Somerville to Boston will be made even easier. MassDOT will incorporate a bike/ pedestrian path along the green line extension project that will also serve as utility access to and from the green line extension project. Once completed Somerville residents will have a direct bike/walk route to and from downtown Boston.
What makes this project even more exciting is that residents of Boston will now have access to the Minuteman Bikeway through a 48-mile continuous network of paths that will now include the Charles River pathways.
Starting a dialogue on the future of urban living in Boston and beyond.
